I have had a letter from Urbanpoint Property Management Limited

Resolved Question:

I have had a letter from Urbanpoint Property Management Limited . They have explained they are now acting on behave of G&O Estates limited. They hold the lease on the land my house is built on. They say they want to know if I have done any alterations to the property, plus an upto date insurance policy. They want to know how much the house is insured for. When I bought thus house I was not asked any of this. I have owned the house since 1989 and do I have to give them all this information.
Kind regards
Liz Jack

Hello Liz my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Does the lease say you have to give them all this information please?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The letter from the new management says so. I don't understand why they want these personal details.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Does that mean I have to pay an additional £30 odd pound to what I have just paid
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I don't seem to be getting the hang of this. Can you please give me an answer or can I cancel the £38 I have just paid
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
No. Its a one off fee.
Does your lease say you need to give this information? Can you check?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The form they sent me is a leaseholder information from.
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Yes but if you check your lease - does it say you have to provide this?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I haven't got a lease as I have had this house since 1989 and wouldn't be able to find it now. They just say they want to update their records.
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Ok. You or your Solicitor must have the lease. That is because you have had it to do a transfer. You need to check that document. If it says you must provide the information when requested then you must. If it does not say you need to provide it then you dont.
In any event they are responsible for any buildings insurance (you contents), so it makes no difference in reality whether you are insured or not. Either the responsibility is theirs or yours.
But you need to check the lease, the question as to whether or not you need to provide it is in there.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

One more thing as I have paid my mortgage and have the deeds will it be in there.
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
It should be. But there will be a lease document. That is what you need.
Does that help?
